I don't think farmers were invited to this event. Farmers’ participation in FoodAg 2023 would have been beneficial. They could have seen the showcase of Pakistani food and produce, and interacted with international buyers and partners. This could have stimulated them to increase their production and explore new export markets. The event was mainly for buyers and investors, but farmers are essential for the agricultural sector. Their involvement would have highlighted their importance and inspired them to produce more and ensure food security. For future events, it would be wise to include farmers for a more comprehensive representation of the agricultural value chain and to leverage their potential for growth and development.
